Three children and three adults were brutally murdered by a transgender shooter, Audrey Hale, at the Christian Covenant School in Nashville on March 27th. The attack was planned “over a period of months,” according to the Nashville police.
On March 30th – three days after the massacre — President Joe Biden proclaimed March 31st as “Transgender Day of Visibility.” Instead of honoring the memory of the victims murdered in cold blood at the school, Biden decided that it was more important to honor the “joy, strength, and absolute courage” of “millions of transgender and nonbinary Americans.”
The president’s press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, said on March 30th that “our hearts go out to…the trans community as they are under attack right now.” No, Ms. Jean-Pierre, our hearts go out to the six victims at the Christian school slain by a transgender killer just three days earlier, and to the victims’ survivors.
First Lady Jill Biden did go to Nashville to attend a vigil for the victims of the massacre. But President Biden, who is supposed to be the nation’s mourner-in-chief in times of tragedies like this, did not join her. In fact, the president did not spend a moment publicly lamenting the abominable, targeted attack on innocent children and adults at the Christian school by the fiendish killer just a week before the start of Holy Week. Instead, President Biden exploited the tragedy to push his gun control agenda. He also lashed out at those he accused of being “MAGA extremists [who] are advancing hundreds of hateful and extreme state laws that target transgender kids and their families,” laws which he claimed were “un-American.”
On the same day that two of the victims — 9-year-old Hallie Scruggs and 61-year-old substitute teacher Cindy Peak – had their funerals, the Biden administration added insult to injury by kicking off its “White House Roundtable Affirming Transgender Kids.” President Biden chose the day that one of the three Christian kids slaughtered by a mentally deranged transgender was buried to affirm transgender kids.
If President Biden is so concerned about extremists, he should condemn the Stalinist trans militants who threaten biological women with physical harm for speaking their mind about fair competition in women’s sports. The latest example was the assault on April 6th by trans militants against Riley Gaines, a former NCAA swimmer who had just delivered a speech at San Francisco State University (SFSU) on the theme of protecting women’s sports. She ended up, after the speech, barricaded in a safe room for three hours for her own protection until the police were able to escort her safely out of the building.
“The pendulum has swung too far,” said Ms. Gaines. “Women should not be put in danger because we feel uncomfortable sharing a changing space with someone of the opposite sex. We shouldn’t be put in danger because we want our sports to be safe and fair. We have the right to express this without being mobbed. I’m sure the Biden administration will release a statement expressing how this further endangers the LGBTQ community and continue to preach ‘inclusion’ no matter how females are hurt or excluded in the process.”
